Flowers in blooom

Sherry and I were driving north when Sherry saw what at first we though was a rock on top of a dune. After stopping we ascertained that it was one of the most magnificent lions we'd ever seen in the park. As we were alone, we decided to stay and wait. The lion spotted a Hartebeest down near the road and started to move toward us. The Hartebeest quickly moved away, but the lion continued crossing the road only a short distance in front of us. The wind blowing his mane made for some neat shots.
